Paul Snieder, Northwestern
Jr., 1B, Honolulu, Hawaii / Punahou
Snieder picks up his first career Player of the Week award after leading Northwestern to a two-game series sweep against Michigan over the weekend. The first baseman hit .750, slugged 1.250, drove in five runs and scored three more. The junior racked up three hits in both games and picked up his sixth home run of the season, a grand slam in the seventh inning of Game 1. Snieder also recorded hits in each of Northwestern’s non-conference wins during the week, improving his average to .370, which ranks third in the Big Ten. The Honolulu, Hawaii, native also ranks among the conference’s top five in slugging (.558) and on-base percentage (.456).

Jarred Hippen, Iowa
Jr., LHP, Rock Falls, Ill. / Rock Falls

The junior scattered just three hits and two walks over nine innings, striking out five in his third complete-game effort of the season.
